that is the plan right now for republicans. get this debt ceiling debate out of the way for the next three months. focus on government spending, those automatic government spending cuts that are supposed to hit at end of the february known as sequester. all of that starts the spending fight now, republicans say. move onto the debt ceiling to give at least a little bit more certainty or calm economic panic for the next few months, with this debt ceiling fight. and try to extract more spending cuts out of democrats over the next few months. but again it has become clear through this strategy, appears we're going to have these spending and budgeting fight pretty much every few months in washington, as no long-term strategy is yet to emerge. back to you. ashley: you're thrilled by that, rich edson, thanks so much. tracy: poor guy. all right, let's talk more about that. house republicans laying out their strategy in this debt ceiling fight but will this no budget, no pay thing work to address our physical problems? joining us now, douglas holtz-eakin, president of the american action for rim. rich is
the debt ceiling off the table and increase it and you lose your leverage. republicans lose your leverage. and the conversation that you'd like to have. right now, politics is standing in the way of good economics. >> congress believes solution is the way to a problem. we have two points we can leverage. one, you're right, the debt ceiling and the cr that becomes due on march 27th. the cr might be a better place to use that leverage. one place or another, we need to decide that both sides need to come to the table of commonsense and put america on a better course to economics. >> thank you for being with me. >> thank you. >> for more, tune in to
they want to do is say, look, we'll give a debt ceiling increase, but what you have to do in the signal is pass a budget. that's the current thinking right now. that gives them more leavage. >> i guess you guys will talk about the second term? >> we have senator schumer, senator cruz from texas, so we'll talk about guns, the debt, and great roundtable, too. and where there's some real challenges and opportunities there as well. you appeared in it. >> i don't want to commen about any of that. it has nothing to do with me. the nra does what it does. the ad is factually incorrect. i think, you know. this is not about me. i ask tough questions on both sides on my program. people sometimes want to make me a political target, which i shouldn't be. in this particular case, they're taking on an argument that's factually untrue. the only protection they get is from the secret service. that's true of all kids at that school. >> pretty long no comment. your assignment on inauguration today i? >> i'll be with brian williams and savannah guthrie. we'll be watching it all happen and talking about the
conference right before noon to, again, attack the republics on the issue of the debt ceiling and they have to not play around with the debt ceiling powell is a sophisticated player. i don't think he does anything without thinking it through quite well. that's why i said what i said i want to make sure we have your allegations on the record. i don't want to put words in your mouth. >> it's a supposition. >> bill: you say that you think that collin powell was asked by someone to go out and defend chuck hagel's nomination. and at the same time, raise the spector that some people are owe posing the president's policies because he is black. that that was to put in one interview in one presentation. that's what you think may have happened? it might have happened. implication of what he said really is quite inprogram inflay to say least. it's in line with what liberal commentators have said for some time. every time you criticize barack obama there will be someone out there in the blogosphere or television or radio saying well you just like the fact that a black man is in power. it's ridiculous.
ceiling? >> listen, i prefer having a ceiling. i prefer having that sense of discipline. >> right. >> i like everybody else in this country, including the politicians have been frustrated by our inability to grab this issue by the throat and start doing something about it for the future of our competitiveness. now, we had a start with the deficit reduction efforts. >> right. >> prior to that i thought the bowles simpson commission was a powerful response to what we could do about our own deficit. >> why do you think the president ignored that? i mean his own commission, he ignored it. why do you think he did that? >> i can't speak for the president charlie. >> why do you think it got no traction then? >> this is politics. this requires two parties -- you had the republican party had to concede something on the take side. the democrats had to concede something on the spending side. the way i saw it with the spending cuts that were in process already and with the growth in the economy, we needed 2 of the 4. it was pretty straightforward. tax increasing and spending. business people would
right this guy -- maybe this time he means that he is not going to negotiate on this debt ceiling. do you sense that's what is coming out of this? or is there a darker path that they are trying to follow? >> well, what has me so intrigued are the at attentions between the house republicans and the republicans in the senate. if you look at the sequestration and automatic budget cuts, it looks like the house wants to try to blame the senate if things fall apart. so they can say now the burden is on the senate which they have to agree to an overall budget deal by april. and then they can say at that point we'll deal with the debt ceiling. so it was a way to put some pressure on mitch mcconnell. but mitch mcconnell seems to think that okay we'll pass a budget in the senate and then use that as possible leverage with the republicans in the house who might hold up the debt ceiling. >> michael: that makes perfect sense that that is what they are trying to do it is really just passing the buck. the white house held a firm line on saying we're not going to negotiate at a
said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bumps are going to put a lot of pressure and lot of press in my opinion on the main issue and the main issue is whether you're republican or conservative or democrat, it certainly seems like th
republicans? i think we're beginning to see one result, which is the offer of a short-term debt ceiling extension that they don't want to engage in this second cliff battle with the white house right now. >> thanks for having me on. i told them a couple of things. one is stick to your principles. we need a principled conservative party. not another liberal party. but, secondly, find ways to talk about the kitchen table issues that people care about and solve problems and offer a clear contrast to the president about managing the finances of the united states of america. i think john boehner and eric cantor are doing a good job working together. i think we have to find ways to more carefully explain to people all year long why conservative principles work. i think they'll do that, and i look forward to working with them as governors do around the country in getting things done. >> do you think after newtown and the massacre there that things have changed on can't we find some middle place between the white house and congress on guns? >> i think the fist question, andrea, is what are the
? and it's killing -- every time we get a little better, 2011, the debt ceiling, and today, washington keeps making it worse. >> peter hart, there is also another aspect where the president stands right now and we wanted to put it in historical terms. this is the third straight two-term presidency so the third straight second inaugural we'll have if you will. >> right. >> it is similarities between obama and bush. this has been 2004 and 2012. very similar elections. they're in the same standing. where is the direction of the country, under clinton 46%. 40%. 35%. wrong track, though. clinton 38%. so he was a net positive. both bush and obama facing a net negative. when you see these numbers and you're in the middle of writing your second inaugural you have to take that into account when speaking to the public don't you? >> absolutely. and part of it is it's going from a position of hope to the ability to cope. and that's where the public is at. they recognize these are indeed difficult times and what is important is the ability to bring the public along. one thing you have to remember i
for future, because they're going to have a hard time with the debt ceiling. that 27 could go to 12. >> there is usually somewhere lower to go. thank you very much, john avalon. >>> all right, well "outfront" next, we are learning new details about the american hostages in algeria. the family of one hostage spoke with cnn's david mattingly today. he's been chasing that down and he is going to be "outfront" in a moment. and more trouble for boeing. the electric problem of the dreamliner leading more countries to ground planes from america's biggest company. about health care...se i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three stra
that they were going to postpone for three months, that they would raise the debt ceiling both on it next week. i think the president understood that he came out of the initial round strengthened and the republicans came out weakened. right now, the republican party is in as bad shape politically as i can ever remember it being. the republican party which was favorable in public opinion just as recently as two years ago is now minus 23% unfavourable. john boehner, who was favorable has dropped to the point where he is 19% unfavourable in public opinion polls. it is the lowest ever recorded in the history of "the wall street journal," nbc poll so they had to get out of this. they couldn't face this fight again. in the sense of people is that if it did lead to the government defaulting on its obligations and social security checks not going out, checks not going out to personnel, the republicans would be blamed again. so i think the president understood the advantage he had. and he played it. >> and the republicans understood their own situation in today's actions. >> the professionals did, john bo

the table for now. obviously things like the debt ceiling and the dysfunction in washington are reasons for concern, but i think one of the factors that's underpinning the equity market is the fact that bonds rates, u.s. interest rates, it's a tired story and folks are getting very frustrated fighting bernanke. >> gordon, let me ask you what you're seeing in terms of flow. first of all, what happened at the end of the day here? i turn my eyes away from the ticker for a moment, and the market is up 53 points. what was the flow at the end of the day, and would you go into next week holding technology? is that another weak spot, do you think, next week as stephanie just pointed out that a lot of industrial names, the real economy stories, are going to start driving things? >> well, maybe. they were buying beamary little bit and beamer reports next week, too. you can't turn your head for a minute in this market. washington puts out a little blush they will start cooperating with each other, that seems to be a little bit of a catalyst. kind of gave us anni impetus foa bust. if you go back tw
day for republicans and democrats as they haggle over raising the debt ceiling or not. let's get the latest from kristin welker at the white house. hey, kristin. >> hey, karen. >> there's been some serious stuff, this back and forth today between the white house and john boehner and harry reid and nancy pelosi. is there any response that you're getting from the white house to this latest, quote, unquote pru unquote, plan that the republicans have put forward? >> reporter: the white house is sort of echoing what you're hearing from majority leader reid which is they're encouraged by the fact that the republicans seem to be moving on this issue and willing to increase the debt ceiling. however, i think what is going to be a problem from the white house's perspective is that three months. i was speaking with a senior administration official a little earlier today and he sort of reiterated the fact that the president is opposed to this idea of increasing the debt ceiling in these small increments because it creates crises every couple of months. so that could be a potential problem m
seriously address the root of the problem. >> i don't have a problem with raising the debt ceiling. i don't want to cause a problem, but it's got to be spending cuts. >> yeah. >> whether you agree or not. i'm sure you don't agree, but the republicans right now must have this message of spending cuts for the life of them they cannot get out of that. and no more tax increases. i mean, put yourself in their shoes. >> yeah. >> you're a former communications director. don't you think they have got to have that kind of message? >> yes. they have -- but they have to come forward also, larry, with a message that says and here's how we want to do it. and in a way that says, you know, again, because remember part of the reason they're losing this argument is they're very vulnerable to the argument they're trying to protect, you know, the big corporations and, you know, sort of corporate welfare at the expense of the middle class. if they're going to come forward and say here's our plan, it's got to be have a message and here's why it's got for everyone. that's somebody to help everybody. marley whe
night at 8 on c-span's "q&a." >> next, a discussion on the debt ceiling and deficit reduction debate. this was part of a brookings institution forum on jobs and the economy. this panel is an hour or and 20 minutes -- an hour and 20 minutes. [inaudible conversations] >> all right. should we get started again? um, i'm either using that vision, or that clock is way off. but i'll use my watch. okay. so if everybody could come in from coffee and sit down, we'll get started on our second panel. and we're delighted to welcome a really terrific set of panelists, lew kaden, vice chair of citi, maya macguineas who is now involved in or leading the fix the debt campaign. bob mcdonald who is the ceo and president of procter & gamble, and ralph schlosstein who's the ceo of ever corp.. so really a terrific group. let me just give a little bit of context, at least while everyone's filing into the room. i'm martin baily with the economic studies program at brookings. if we cast our minds back to the 1960s, the 1960s, obviously b, was a troubled decade politically, but economically growth was pretty
